This bowl is made from a maple tree in Daytona Beach FL that was damaged in a storm. This maple has a unique grain pattern. This bowl measures 9 1/4 inches in diameter by 3 1/2 inches high and is finished with a satin lacquer. There are numerous insect holes and tracks but the insects are gone :-)
Insect holes on the interior of the bowl walls have been filled in with a CA glue.
Five coats of a satin lacquer have preserved the natural beauty of the wood.
Cutouts on either side of the bowl rim are for utensils to sit in, and also make the bowl easier to hold.
This bowl started out as a large chalice similar to others I have done, until some soft areas on the top edge changed its destiny ;-)
